Importance of Daily Attendance

Attendance and social development is important for ALL John Adams students, including preschool, Transitional Kindergarten, and Kindergarten students.  RUSD's LCAP Goal 3 is to "Fully engage students, parents and the community in support of short and long term educational outcomes."  One of those outcomes is to increase positive attendance.  Here at John Adams we celebrate every month the top three classes with highest attendance.  In addition, we celebrate every two months individual students with perfect attendance with a special lunch event.  At the end of the year, all students with perfect attendance will be recognized at our assemblies and awarded with a special gift.  Please remember that it takes your support to achieve our LCAP goal 3 outcome of increasing positive attendance.  We know many of our parents are working and have other children at different schools.  But please make a strong effort to have your child at school before 8:30 am.  Our line up bell rings at 8:30 and instruction begins at 8:35.  Children are welcome to be dropped off by 8:00 am and breakfast is available at that time.
